Emo Philips is a comedian with a style which certainly could be described as offbeat. Philips also gave me one of the funniest quotes for the literacy ad series I ran at Lerner Newspapers. Actually, Philips gave me several quotes, each individually scribbled on an index card. That was certainly original.
Years before that, I sent Philips a letter asking him for an autograph. I got a response within 10 days. That was surprising enough, but what he wrote really made me crack up.
